Default I think I had a moral right to run the guy over!

Yesterday, I was paying for my breakfast sandwich at a McDonald's drive thru window. My GS Vert top was down so this loser (likely unemployed) pedals his piece of crap bicycle past me and mutters "sounds like a 4 cylinder". Luckily, I don't suffer from road rage very often or I would have let him get a closer listen to my engine from underneath.

EDIT: Apparently a few people on here don't read the whole thread. This original post was meant to be a "Tongue In Cheek" observation of a "probable" hater. At NO time did I ever have any thoughts of actually running the guy over. I just thought it was a goofy thing for someone to say. I really don't need any more members with no sense of humor informing me that I'm overreacting, or that there are bigger problems in the world.

If you have a bone stock non NPP exhaust. I don't blame the guy because they are too quiet! !! If you had an NPP exhaust with the fuse pulled or any after market system I guarantee he wouldn't have said that. You own an American icon sports car, it should sound like one!

So if I was riding my bike to work in my work clothes ( they always look worn ) that means I am an unemployed loser?

I do have NPP with Mild2Wild switch, and it was in "loud" mode. Next month I'm having headers installed, but I don't think it would have made a difference with this moron.

I said "likely unemployed". This was in Niagara Falls, NY...so that's not much of a stretch to think that. And he was a loser because he was being an *** for no reason. I wasn't even looking in his direction when he made his smart *** comment.

I hope you all realize I was saying this "tongue and cheek". He could have thrown rocks at my car and I wouldn't have ACTUALLY run the loser down.

You eat in your car? Sacrilege!

Next time . . . Finish your meal, turn off TC/AH and tail whip him coming out of the fast food lane.
